The sponsor is a third country national

This page provides information on the conditions to be met and the documentation to be submitted by a family member of a third-country national who is legally residing in Belgium.  

Third-country national means any foreign national who is not a national of any of the Member States of the European Union or the Schengen area, nor of a country associated with the European Union (Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway, Switzerland). 

Certain family members of a third-country national legally residing in Belgium may benefit from special conditions due to the situation of the sponsor in Belgium. This is the case in particular for family members of a foreign national to whom Belgium has granted international protection (refugee status or temporary protection), a foreign national authorised to reside in Belgium for medical reasons (article 9ter of the Law), or a foreign national who has obtained long-term resident status in another European Union State.
